Yankee catcher Bill Dickey was the Pudge Rodriguez of his generation, who could hit like Piazza and handle a pitching staff like Varitek. He came up in 1928, and ran the pitching staff during the latter half of the Gehrig/Ruth era. Dickey proved a consummate competitor, sparring with the opposition while calming the often brilliant but erratic Lefty Gomez, and anchoring the second Murderer's Row, knocking in more than 100 RBI's a year from 1936-1939 as the Yankees won four straight world championships. This 1935 contract is for a salary of $14,500 and is signed by Dickey and AL president Harridge. The signature of Yankees team owner Jacob Ruppert appears in the hand of team president Ed Barrow. In 1946, after three years in the service, Dickey finished his 17-year Hall of Fame career, serving as interim manager. From 1949 he assisted Stengel as a coach for the third NY dynasty, was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1954 and had his number "8" retired by the Yankees. Excellent condition overall with minor wear and crease from folding. LOA from PSA/DNA.
